The Arnage T laid claim to the title of world's fastest saloon in 2002, propelling the driver, in total luxury to a top speed of 170mph. Powered by a 6.75 litre twin turbo version of the Rolls-Royce, V8 engine, the nearly three-ton car could accelerate from 0-60mph in just 5.5 seconds. The engine was treated to what Bentley described as 'the most thorough re-engineering of its life’ producing 451bhp and 645lb/ft of torque. Other changes included the adoption of a 'drive-by-wire' throttle to go hand-in-glove with Bosch's Electronic Stability Program which replaced the Red Label's traction control, but what really gives this nearly three-ton car its immense poise is a revised suspension that features 57% more roll stiffness than the Red Label. The car's basic structure is also 10% stiffer which means there are no creaks and squeaks of the sort that distinguished previous generations of Bentleys.

This is a beautifully specified example in Midnight Emerald with Spruce hide, rear mini fridge with picnic tables and glasses and it presents in very impressive condition throughout. The car was specified by and originally registered to Bentley Motors, wearing the registration ’20 TU’, it is believed to have been used by senior management and for press duties at the time. The car has been in current ownership since 2011 and comes with a comprehensive service history, with a record of 15 services in total at main agents and specialists. Supplied to auction with a V5C registration document and MoT test certificate. Consigned by Fraser Smith

Interested parties should note, it has come to our attention that the car appears to have originally been Silver, but had a colour change in 2006.
